Hello,

There are alternative mail activity which do not require Outlook installation.

Simplest ones are SMTP (Send) and POP3 (Get all emails).

Details depend on your mail provider, the for for Gmail can find details herefor example :

You will need to provide UserName, Password and Server Address.

More Protocol are handled by UiPath as well such as IMap / Exchange if need to more advance things like accessing your mail folders structure.
